Benjamin Watson Exits Against Panthers

New England Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson left the team's third preseason game after a hit to the head against the Panthers. The veteran caught a 10-yard pass from quarterback Tom Brady and took a hit to the helmet from the Panthers Eric Reid. It was a dangerous hit and Watson did not return. Watson is suspended for the first four games of the season but was eligible to participate in exhibition play. Watson will hit the waiver wire to begin the season in fantasy.

Benjamin Watson Facing Four-Game Suspension

New England Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson announced on his social media on Sunday that he is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. Watson took a testosterone supplement that was legally prescribed by his doctor but banned by the league when he figured his playing days were over after the 2018 season. The 15-year veteran and 38-year-old spent the first six years of his career with the Patriots after being taken with the final pick of the first round in 2004. The Patriots signed Watson regardless of his suspension, mainly because they need depth after Rob Gronkowski retired. Watson had 35 catches for 400 yards and two touchdowns for the Saints last season, but he's unlikely to be anything more than a low-end TE2 in 2019. Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Matt LaCosse will battle for playing time to begin the year with Watson suspended.

Benjamin Watson Plans To Sign With Patriots

Free-agent tight end Benjamin Watson plans to sign with the New England Patriots. The former first-round pick of New England back in 2004, Watson will compete for playing time with Austin Seferian-Jenkins now that Rob Gronkowski has retired. Watson spent the first six years of his career with the Patriots. He caught just 35 passes for 400 yards and two touchdowns with the Saints last year and is unlikely to be much of a fantasy asset in 2019.
